ArteFact: How To Behave In An Art Gallery | Nelson Arts Festival

Friday 28th-Saturday 29th October 2022

(Re)Discover the Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū: this playful site-specific dance/theatre work by Arts Laureate Ross McCormack invites you into rabbit holes of possibility. Follow the performers, gallery hosts and art experts on a never-before tour of the gallery spaces.

“It can be quite challenging looking at an artwork in a gallery. The first thing I like to do is make sure it is indeed an artwork.”

You can never be certain who might be leading you on this mischievous journey, where they may take you or what they may teach you about visual art.

Created by Director/Choreographer Ross McCormack

Made possible with the support of Creative New Zealand, Foundation North, Auckland Council and Wellesley Studios

This event is part of the 2022 Nelson Arts Festival.
